A pinkish part then at times is redder than pink ,no pain just worried it might be sign of something that I need to address before my next eye appointment

You are probably nothing what we refer to as a pingueculum or a small pterygium, a small piece of fleshy tissue near the iris, this is a benign condition and can be inquired up on at the next visit with your eye doctor.
